Mangal was established in 1991 and it is a fully licenced, air conditioned restaurant with a refigerated display of raw kebabs, a steaming, sizzling ocak grill, a hot table laden with simmering stews and braises.
Hot pide and sac breads accompany starters of lentil soup or garlicky cacik, and ezme is a winning dish of roasted aubergine mashed with olive oil , fresh tomato, green herbs and hot pepper. Mangal 2 has a capacity of 70 people.

Finally chicken shis, lamb with yoghurt & bread and another meat dish (possibly another lamb). All fantastic. Fresh & perfectly cooked. All of this for £50 total (£12.50 per person). I've eaten so much I can barely type...more
This was not a dinner date, my date was starving on out way to a party, so what better I thought, than quick bit a tradish homestyle Okabashi.
Och my God! Their service was more meh than Merhaba. The blue tacked reviews obliterating a view in through the steamed up windows, got the better of my curiosity and led me to enquire further in and before I could say OK(abashi) I was shoved in, sat...more

They have all sorts of skewered goodies here including three kinds of alternative lamb (liver,...more
